I built a 13” thickness sander a few years ago from the plans online. Then I regrettably sold it and now I am recollecting tools I want another one.
The thing is I would also really like a v-drum sander for various purposes and don’t really want to buy two full sets of parts. My idea was to simply add a table to the top of a thickness sander that would serve as the v-drum table and fold up out of the way to thickness plane and to put a quick release style dust collection hood in it’s place.
One problem I foresee right away is dust collection for the v-drum operation. I would probably put the motor in a cabinet below and add some kind of removable shroud.
I haven’t seen anyone attempt this so I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions or problems that I may not be seeing with the concept or if anyone has seen one done before?
